Midwood senior Raquel Hosein attended the she++ conference as a 2014 #include Fellow at Standford University in California April 3–5, 2014.

she++ strives to involve high school students in the computer science field. This year, she++ selected 30 aspiring students from across the nation to become #include Fellows and attend the #include Summit for the #include Fellowship Program. They were selected based on their application, which included demonstrating an outreach project.

Raquel worked with students at Brooklyn College Community Partnership to build a hydroponics farm at the Brooklyn College location. In doing so, Raquel wanted to kick start the science initiative at BCCP. Raquel would like to create an interdisciplinary approach to the sciences, using interior design alongside engineers to build the farm, as BCCP is striving to help high school students become motivated about the things they are learning.
